I am a semi-techy (BS Comp Sci, BS Chem Engg), software engineering background. Rudimentary or dated Network, Network Engineering, OS, Crypto, ASM, knowledge. Moved to the dark side – PM a while back…
I understand the moral and ethical dilemmas around hitting a wrong target etc.
I humbling submit that only defense and no offense has limited efficacy. ~~Criminals~~ This vermin will just come back with impunity.
But I believe due to limited or zero legal remedies. Society must find ways to exact price of equal or greater value – although they are ~~criminal~~ vermin’s these are humans with similar soft ~~spots~~ underbelly. All is fair in love and war adage.
I am feeling nauseous feeling since reading about increasing targeting of hospitals.
But do we **even** have any reasonable **technical** options of chasing ransomware actors?
###Is it technically impossible to go after them in any reasonable way?
